Banner Mattresses opened under new management

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) - Banner Mattress and Furniture closed its doors earlier this year, but now under a new name the one of a kind Toledo made mattresses are still being made in the glass city.

Banner Mattress has been in Toledo since 1929 and four men did not want to see the production leave the glass city, so they decided to open Banner Mattress Direct.

The old stores, located on Alexis and Hill, closed back in September. The new store sits on Reynolds Road and the mattresses are still being made at the original factory on Bishop.

Manger Wayne Leahey says it is important to continue to provide people in Toledo with the same Banner service.

“Parents have bought them, now you have the grand kids buying them for their kids, it's been a big tradition in this town to have a Banner Mattress,” said Leahey.

Under the new management, owners have come up with a new line for the business and will now be producing two-sided flip-able mattresses.

“It increases the longevity of a mattress, you can rotate it, I always suggest to my customers to rotate it, flip it with the change of the seasons,” said Leahey.

The store is hoping to expand to another location by spring of next year.
